On the other hand, the device should be high Efficiency with known positions of the driving elements Safe insertion and removal stations of the cigarette groups put.
The compact design of a cigarette packaging machine with Trouble-free running of the pocket conveyor requires one optimal arrangement of the folding revolver and the holder with the Cigarette magazine. So the problem is one space-saving arrangement of the parts without affecting the To find performance or functionality.
From DE-OS 15 61 962 is a cigarette packaging machine for conveying cigarette groups according to the preamble of Claim 1 known, in which a folding turret a lower Trum is assigned. A picture with a cigarette magazine is arranged on an upper run. The arrangement of the folding Revolvers and the recording with the cigarette magazine above each other leads to a very expansive construction.
In DE-OS 24 07 580 is a system for manufacturing and Packing cigarettes or the like and a method described for storing the same. A pocket chain is looped around several pulleys. A special one space-saving arrangement is not recognizable.
Furthermore, DE-AS 11 31 589 describes one method and one Device for loading packing machines with cigarettes or similar objects. A revolver-like order a horizontal axis rotatable conveyor takes Blocks of cigarettes directly at a lower vertex a magazine. At an upper vertex, the Cigarette blocks pushed onto conveyor belts.
The object underlying the invention is a Conveyor device in connection with a packaging machine to create, which is characterized by a compact design at high Efficiency and gentle transport of the cigarette Groups.
To achieve this object, the device is as follows Characteristics marked:
- a) the folding turret is an upper run and the receiving station with the cigarette magazine is a bottom strand of the pocket assigned to the conveyor, such that the cigarette groups in the Area of the lower run in the pockets of the pocket conveyor insertable and in the area of the upper run from the pockets the folding revolver can be transferred,
- b) the receiving station with the cigarette magazine is moved arranged to the folding revolver,

Further developments of the invention result from the rest Claims. The folding revolver is preferably assigned Upper run of the pocket conveyor at a constant speed and the sub-run assigned to the receiving station in cycles, with a standstill phase, movable. This aspect of Invention is based on the finding that a pocket as a funding body for the cigarette groups in is particularly suitable, the transition from a cyclical Sequence of movements to an uninterrupted flow of conveyance effect. For this purpose, the pocket conveyor is several exposed to superimposed movements. One continuously revolving drive element acts a compensating movement of the Pocket conveyor in such a way that in the area of the lower run there is a temporary standstill of the pocket conveyor. During this brief standstill phase, the cigarette Groups across the direction of conveyance into the pocket openings of the Pocket conveyor introduced.
In the area of the delivery station, preferably in the area of the circumferential folding revolver, on the circumference of the pockets is brought in, the transfer of the Cigarette groups on subsequent aggregates, in particular on Wrapping and folding units, due to axially parallel displacement groups of cigarettes during continuous transport. This makes the packaging machine extremely efficient guaranteed with very gentle handling of the cigarettes.
The conveyor drive of the pocket conveyor is advantageously thanks to the folding Revolver or a part of it (turret disk) from the Transfer pocket conveyors. The superimposed compensatory movement through the pulleys is so on the conveying movement of Pocket conveyor matched that during a round trip Movement of the pulleys a standstill phase of the lower strums occurs, preferably during a movement section of 60 ° of the back and forth movement measured at 360 °, the Standstill phase, for example, in a middle position of the pulleys occurs during the return movement of the same.

The exemplary embodiments of a device as part of a packaging machine shown in the drawings are intended for the conveyance of cigarettes formed in cigarette groups 10 . These should be wrapped in blanks to form cigarette packs, especially soft cup packs.
The cigarettes are fed from a cigarette manufacturing machine to a cigarette magazine 11 . This is constructed in a conventional manner, but with several, namely four ejection areas for cigarette groups 10 . These are shaft groups 12 , which are each formed from several merged shafts 13 . In each shaft 13 there is a row of stacked cigarettes in the usual way. In the lower area, a slide group 14 pushes a cigarette group 10 out of each shaft group 12 and supplies it to a pocket conveyor 17 via a cigarette channel 15 in the area of a receiving station 16 . The pocket chain 17 accommodates one cigarette group 10 in one pocket 18 .
By the pocket conveyor 17, the cigarette groups are fed to folding members 10 for wrapping and of which a folding turret 20 is shown in the drawings a turret disc 19th In the area of the folding turret 20 , the cigarette groups 10 are ejected by axially parallel displacement from the pockets 18 of the pocket conveyor 17 and the turret pockets of the folding turret are fed.
The endless pocket conveyor 17 runs over deflection rollers 21 and 22 . In the present case, these lie in a common horizontal plane. As a result, an upper run 23 and a lower run 24 of the pocket conveyor 17 are formed. In the preferred embodiment of FIG. 1, the receiving station 16 is in the region of the lower strand 24 , so that dust and fine tobacco can freely fall down. The folding revolver 20 is assigned to the upper run 23 offset from the cigarette magazine 11 . The pocket conveyor 17 is brought up to the circumference of the folding turret 20 or the turret disk 19 and lies on this along a partial circle, according to FIG. 1 approximately along a quarter circle, on the circumference at a matching conveying speed.
In the embodiment of FIG. 2, the cigarette magazine 11 and thus the receiving station 16 are assigned to the upper run 23 , while the folding turret 20 extends in the region of the lower run 24 . The turret plate 19 is along a larger arc wrapped here by the pockets conveyor 17, whereby a longer conveying path for the transfer of the cigarette group 10 is formed.
The movement characteristic of the pocket conveyor 17 is of a special kind. In the area of the receiving station 16 , in the embodiment of FIG. 1 in the area of the lower run 24 , in the embodiment of FIG. 2 in the area of the upper run 23 , the pocket conveyor 17 is moved in cycles . For the transfer of the cigarette groups 10 , that is, for the insertion thereof into the pockets 18 adjacent to the shaft groups 12 of the cigarette magazine 11 , the pocket conveyor 17 is currently at a standstill (standstill phase). This makes it possible to insert the cigarette groups transversely to the conveying direction of the pocket conveyor 17 . In the area of the transfer of the cigarette groups 10 to the folding turret 20 (transfer station), that is, in the exemplary embodiment from FIG. 1 in the area of the upper run 23 and in the embodiment of FIG. 2 in the area of the lower run 24 , the pocket conveyor 17th moves continuously, with the (constant) circumferential movement of the folding turret 20th Due to the synchronization, the leadership of the cigarette groups 10 to the folding turret 20 is possible during the movement.
This complex movement characteristic of the pocket conveyor 17 is caused by the fact that a constant Förderan the same drive a compensation movement is superimposed. This is generated by the deflecting rollers 21 and 22 which, in coordination with the movement processes in the area of the receiving station 16 and the folding turret 20, carry out movements 25 and return movements 26 of the same amplitude ( FIG. 9). The amplitude of these, in the present exemplary embodiments, running in the horizontal plane, the movements are so coordinated that a (short) standstill phase 27 of the pocket conveyor 17 in the region of the upper run 23 or the lower run 24 is given during a cycle of forward movement 25 and return movement 26 . This standstill phase 27 occurs in the middle of the return movement 26 , specifically in the present exemplary embodiment during a movement phase of 60 ° with a 360 ° movement cycle.
The guide rollers 21 , 22 are arranged to generate the compensating movement at a fixed distance from each other and connected by a push rod 28 . On this a reciprocating drive is exerted, in the present case by a gear 29 , which is actuated by the folding turret 20 or the turret disk 19 .
For this purpose, on the axis of rotation of the folding turret 20, a drive gear 30 rotating therewith is mounted, which acts on a small output gear 31 . By this in turn, two staggered cam discs 32 and 33 are rotated, on which roll rollers 34 , 35 of a pivot lever 36 expire. This in turn is articulated via a swivel arm 37 to a bracket 38 and this to the push rod 28 . The cams 32 and 33 are - with circular education from - with offset axes of rotation to each other and to a common axis of rotation 39 with the driven gear 31 . This results in an oscillating swivel or angular movement of the swivel arm 37 and thus a to-and-fro movement of the push rod 28 with the deflection rollers 21 , 22 . The pivot lever 36 is connected to a part of the machine frame 41 via a rotary bearing 40 . On this, the turret disk 19 is rotatably attached via a main bearing 42 .
The deflection rollers 21 , 22 are mounted in a special manner for carrying out the back and forth movements 25 , 26 . As can be seen in particular from FIGS. 3 and 4, each deflection roller 21 , 22 is rotatably mounted laterally on a support member, namely a support disk 44 , via a bearing pin 43 . The support disk 44, which can be moved back and forth with the deflection roller 21 , 22, is in turn supported by slide bearings 45 on two guide rods 46 , 47 lying one above the other and extending in horizontal planes. These in turn are firmly connected to the machine frame 41 or a supporting wall of the same via holding pieces 48 . The push rod 28 is connected via a pin joint 49 to the support plate 44 , so that it is driven with the deflection roller 21 , 22 directly reciprocating. The pin joint 49 is attached from the bearing pin 43 to the support plate 44 .
The pocket conveyor 17 can be formed in various ways. A particularly advantageous embodiment according to FIGS. 3 and 4 consists of individual, rigid members, namely the pockets 18 made of metal or the like. Each pocket is provided with a pocket opening 50 for receiving a cigarette group 10 with a transverse arrangement of the cigarettes. The pockets 18 are pivotally connected to one another via pocket joints 52 , namely by installing ball bearings without expansion and wear. This enables exact conveyance of the cigarette groups 10 with the pocket conveyor 17 . The pocket openings 50 lie in the longitudinal center plane of the pocket conveyor 17 or symmetrically to this.
In the present exemplary embodiment, flat toothed webs 53 are attached on the outside of the pockets 18 approximately in the vertical longitudinal center. These can be formed from the material of the pocket 18 or, as here, consist of plastic and can be connected to a base 55 of the pocket 18 via a dovetail connection 54 .
The toothed webs 53 have a multiple function. In the area of the folding turret 20 or the turret disk 19 , the toothed webs 53 form-fit into correspondingly formed recesses 56 along the circumference of the turret disk 20 . This results in a toothing between the pocket conveyor 17 and the turret disk 19 in the area to, so that not only is an exact relative position is given, but can also be transmitted to the pocket conveyor 17 through the turret disk 19 of the (continuous union) drive. As can be seen from FIG. 5, the depressions 56 are designed in the form of a slot.
Furthermore, the tooth ridges 53 in several loading areas of the orbit of the pocket conveyor 17 cause the same side guidance. The support plate 44 is in the area of the deflection with the support plate 44 externally formed guide rails 57 provided with a U-shaped cross section, into which the toothed webs 53 enter in the region of the deflection in a positive and sliding manner.
A modified design of the pocket conveyor 17 is shown in FIGS. 1, 2 and 5, 6 and 7. The pockets 18 designed in a similar manner as described above are divided in the longitudinal median plane in this embodiment, and therefore consist of two partial pockets.
In the division plane, a toothed web 53 is used, which is designed as a circular disk and extends above and below the pocket 18 . This enables a form-fitting engagement with guide or drive elements on both sides of the pocket conveyor 17 . In the embodiment of FIG. 1, the toothed web 53 enters the recesses 56 of the turret disk 19 with the upper region, while in the embodiment according to FIG. 2 the inner regions of the toothed webs 53 bring about the positive engagement.
This design of the pockets 18 or toothed webs 53 also enables guidance in the region of the deflection rollers 21 , 22 with the aid of the toothed webs 53 . These enter into an annular, central guide slot 58 of the deflecting rollers 21 , 22 , whereby an additional lateral guidance is brought about.
In a similar way, namely with a guide slot 59 , pressure rollers 60 , 61 are formed, which are arranged in the area of the inflow of the pocket conveyor 17 to the circumference of the turret 19 and in the area of this, and the pocket conveyor 17 is resilient to the circumference press the turret disk 19 . The pressure rollers are, as can be seen from Fig. 7, mounted on a support pin 62 , which in turn is attached to a part of the machine gear 41 . A pivotable support arm 63 of the pressure roller 60 , 61 is loaded by a compression spring 64 in an oppressive sense.
The pocket conveyor 17 is here also provided with a guide against undesired vertical movements, namely with on one side or on both sides arranged support rollers 65th This on the axis (axle bolt) of the pocket joint 52 seated support rollers 65 occur in guide grooves 66 , 67 next to the path of movement of the pocket conveyor 17 . In the area of the deflection rollers 21 , 22 , such guide grooves 66 are formed in the lateral support disk. As a result, the deflection area is particularly secured ge. Furthermore, a rectilinear guide groove 67 is formed between stationary guide rails 68 of the rectilinear strand of the pocket conveyor 17 , namely in the exemplary embodiment from FIG. 1 in the region of the lower strand 24 and in the exemplary embodiment in FIG. 2 in the region of the upper strand 23 . Further guide grooves 67 with guide rails 68 are located adjacent to the turret disk 19 .
Fig. 8 shows a further alternative for a possible Ge design of the pocket conveyor 17th Here is a carrier tape 69 made of elastic material (plastic, rubber) with tension-resistant, embedded inserts on one side with attached pocket members 70 with pockets 18 . The formed as a hollow body, open on the sides of the pocket members 70 , the carrier tape 69 are integrally formed with this.
In the present case, the pocket members 70 form elements (teeth) for the form-fitting engagement with the circumference of the turret disk 19 . This is formed here with tooth recesses 71 , in which the pocket members 70 enter positively during the installation on the circumference of the turret disk 19 . Adjacent Zahnver indentations 71 are limited by intermediate webs 72 , which have for centering and protruding centering beads 73 in the tooth recesses 71 for fixing and positioning the pocket members 70 . This design enables the pocket members 70 to enter and exit the tooth recesses 71 without constraint.
For further guidance of this pocket conveyor 17 , formed profile thickenings 74 with an approximately trapezoidal cross section are formed between the pocket members 70 . These occur in appropriately designed, approximately half the cross section of the thickened profile 74 corresponding tooth recesses 75 of the deflection rollers 21 , 22 on the one hand and the radially outer end faces of the intermediate webs 72 of the turret disc on the other. The movements of this pocket conveyor ( 17 ) according to FIG. 8 correspond to those described.
